Microsoft Sued For Its new MS Office Products!

Microsoft sued for copyright infringement case against a Canadian company for their Office products, all Office products have now officially been stopped from sales in retail and online.  Well, I don’t use Office anyways, GoogleDocs is much better.  What I like most about GoogleDocs is the fact that it’s free and doesn’t clog up my new computer with crapware.  There, I said it, don’t use Office anymore unless you really have to.  But yes, Windows 7 is definitely something else, I like it.

On Monday, Microsoft yanked almost every version of Office f

The power of a modern cell phone is changing how many things are done today. For example I recently heard that the once CPU taxing program

Windows 7 Hack – How to Run Windows 7 in XP Mode!

Clearly, if you have to run a “virtual” Windows XP on Windows 7, it’s probably simply better to use Windows XP like me, the *middle-adaptor way.

*Middle-adaptor is someone who is between early-adaptor and stubborn people.

But if you must run Windows 7 and tinker with another Microsoft’s junky OS, you can also install Virtual Windows XP, so they will run all of your Windows XP software.

Pointless huh? Microsoft should just start selling XP instead of all the new junk that doesn’t work or even better, make XP better/faster.

Palm Pre Video Review!


Here’s a first look at the new Palm Pre, built on open source platform, sorta like Android.

It looks really good but time will tell how many hackers and developers will catch onto Palm’s open source platform.  There’s no word if it’s based on Linux or proprietary, in which case it will be a hard sell.

I highly like the screen very much.  Well, watch the video!

The video is one of the most complete demonstrations of the Pre that we’ve seen to date, showing app to app transitions without the co
